The team’s Coach Abel Mkandawire said he is happy that his subjects followed instructions and managed to win both games concivincingly.
“We have a very brilliant squad with depth . What we need now are early preparations for tie against Kenya . We would like to ask the authorities to ensure they arrange international friendly games to give the girls more international exposure”, he said.
Striker Temwa Chawinga who is currently the top goal scorer in the African qualifiers with 6 goals says the team has what it takes to make it to the Olympics next year.
“As a striker, my job is to score as many goals as possible. Our team has very talented players and all of us are hardworking. Above all, we listen to our coaches and I believe that with God on our side, we will make it”, said Chawinga.
